Premier League: Manchester United 2-1 Leicester City - 10th August 2018

I think Fred will prove to be a good addition to the first team. His quality on the ball is better than Herrera and Fellaini and the extra body in midfield should help both the defence and attack.

Looks quality. Plenty of energy, good at both ends. Great quality on the ball. Think he provides a balance to our midfield. Think Herrera did alright in the role at end of last season but he is more of a 6 than an 8 I think and Fred looks an upgrade.

To me I think it's really encouraging that Fred has come in and looked so settled in every game. OK I'm sure over time he'll show us more but its a great start to his career. He doesn't look out of place in the Premier League.

He looked very comfortable, he'll settle in very well I think. Not sure about his petulant karate kick that he should have seen red for tho lol

I'm honestly surprised at all the comments i've seen regarding him. I missed the first 20 minutes on a train but from when I was watching I thought he was excellent. Forward thinking moving it fast trying to force others in to moving forward. Exactly what we need. No extra touches just touch bang forwards. But everyone Social Media is also criticising him. Was he really terrible in the first 20 or something?

He grew into the game. I like his forward vision though, he's not a side wards and back pass merchant. Yet.
I couldn't believe he took two corners in succession where he didn't beat the first man either time. Poor.

Give him half a season and he'll be up to speed.

Struggled with their midfield runners early on but that seemed more of a tactical thing that a player thing, improved second half but so far he's not been that impressive struggling to really see what he does but we are 5 or 6 games into a season.

Him Pogba and Fellaini played well. Strikers offered nothing. I’d like to see our front 3 interchanging more. Even if Lukaku ends up wide at points he’s got a great cross on him and we’re far too static

Against... Was it Burnley? I read that Lukaku was pulling out in to wide positions, running the channels and got some good crosses in. Plus he scored so he absolutely can do it.
